year, growth will shot up in 83. so obama policy must be worse than reagan's. centiseconds longer time. a different kind of recession. when there's a credit crunch comes when it's hard to get a credit, the financial sector up and running again, traditionally those take a longer time to get out of. the great depression, for example, took years to get out of, but fdr came in with unemployment at 25%. by the first of his first year it was more like 17. people said hey, that's better than we were. let's keep it going in this direction. and what we have with recovery act is a bottom-up response from primitive we need government to do something. this is not been shut country and shut down our throats. do that the private sector's not going to do it. because they're being battered by this credit crunch, by the collapse of the banks. the public sector major entity of last resort come to step in and prevent everything from going worse. so now at a place where we're not freefalling, but we are still not where we could be and should be. there's lots of things that we need to do to be in a better
has barack obama done as president? approve or disapprove? the approve its 54%. did you notice that? 54%. i have not seen a 54 job approval for the president in a long time. 52% of the country thinks the country is headed in the wrong track and 54 approve of the president's performance. but those numbers together. another question was significant for barack obama and it hurt mitt romney. who was to blame for the current economic problems? they gave a choice, the president or george bush? 38% said president barack obama , 53% said george bush. this goes back to bill clinton. folks, it and i could not have solved this problem. it's all george bush's fault. i think the president and his team and the democratic party got a lot of mileage out of the bush years and out of what the public concluded was george bush's failings or shortcomings. you don't have to agree that he failed are had shortcomings, i am just telling you what the public thinks. that is what matters now. but i think the lesson coming out of this election -- nothing charlie is right, the lesson coming out of this is that t

unparalleled success. at the u.n. lasher president obama spoke strongly about this thing that the u.s. will support a free and open internet so individuals have information to make up their own money. no one has been more forceful advocate of the economic and social opportunities of the open internet and secretary of state hillary clinton. who delivered a landmark speech of internet freedom in 2010 when she said one of the fundamental freedoms of the internet age was the freedom to connect. the idea that governments should not prevent people from connecting to the internet to websites, or to each other. now, internet freedom is sometimes cited as an obstacle to addressing the issues of cybersecurity and intellectual property theft. i disagree with the. i disagree not because i question the importance of the issues of the magnitude of the threat your very serious problems that we have to address. but i believe based on my experience that we can address those issues without undermining the core values like internet freedom and privacy. we've put our money where our mouths are at the f

proposal by the white house and it is clear that the democrats and president obama cannot could not believe that the republicans would agree to this. so what is going on here? >> well, that's a great question. we are doing this kabuki dance now. obama put this proposal out there so that republicans would have a chance to negotiate with him. he started with this outrageous proposal and look at what we have been able to negotiate. $1.6 trillion in tax increases down to under a trillion dollars. something like that. but there is other thinking that the president simply is not serious -- but he that he wants to go over the cliff and force in 2013, early 2013, put forward after tax rates go up on everyone -- turn around and proposed tax propose tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less p year. and voting against tax cuts for the middle-class. it depends on where you said as to how you see these negotiations playing out right now. megyn: but the white house has maintained in private even to progressive groups, but it does not want to go out thecal cliff. if you believe that? >> it's hard to imag

magazine that was derogatory to president obama. jill kelly, when she went to the e-mail and got e-mails, it turns out e-mails were not threats. they were not i am going to get rid of you. they were in most situations bleak and not that threatening they never thought it would turn into anything criminal and so why? >> steve: the answer is broadwell and petraeus set up a g-mail account and this is the same technique used by terrorist and cyber crime people and drug dealers and what they do. they set up a gmail and both people know the pass word and they write on a draft and save the draft and they communicate that way and when the f.b.i. started to look into the hreats, they realize this connects to petraeus. we wonder whether his account has been hacked. they set it up to get around it turned out to be a big red flag. >> brian:ip think f.b.i. agent who is doing the investigation who was pulled off of the case because he was too obsessive and sent a shirtless shot to jill kelly. >> steve: a long time. >> brian: it seems to be permanent and like i have a friend who is a cop . this ti
obama to be more clear and forceful in the things he cared about and less inconsistent? they wanted to see structure. part of confucianism is the king is the king, the minister is the minister, the father is the father, the son is the son, and many have government. and have everyone in his or her place. within the region and the world. as china looks at it since of harmony, japan would be -- how you achieve it, their frustration is the world is not just acquiescing to the notion they are a rich country, that there are returning, that there are powerful and what respect. they want this to the world kind of step back and give it greater latitude. but doesn't -- this is what i think i personally think we're on a collision course. when you look at what china's expectations of the world are, you also look at its paranoia and mercantilism. jim, you're such an expert in cyber. i would like to see what is going on in the cyberworld. it seems hard to me, despite our best efforts in not wanting to replace history, that the rise of a great power usually and often used to conflict. -- leads to
in the papers today that president obama's meeting with labor leaders who are insisting that the president not change entitlements. no cuts to medicare and social security. do you agree? guest: i think some adjustments are going to have to be made. social security today is a lot different than it was when franklin roosevelt first instituted it. it's not as if it's etched in stone. that said, it's got to be a balanced approach. i think that's what the president is going to say. the two actually save the entitlement programs the nation is on the road to bankruptcy, to save them we have to make some adjustments. but you have to do it in a way that also calls for additional revenue. and how you do that through tax restructuring and possibly asking those who have been most successful in society to do a bit more to help get the deficit down, that balanced approach is what i think he's going to insist on. i think you'll find both sides, the my party, will be saying no changes to entitlements whatsoever. and the far right they'll be saying, no revenue whatsoever. what needs to happen, what ultimat
. electing president obama, if you remember, if you go back to win, leading up to and when he announced his support for marriage equality, one you had many people just asking the question. is this going to be good? is this going to be bad? than you had our opponents saying the doom and gloom scenario suggesting to other politicians that they follow the president's lead and they will follow it right into retirement. one of my favorites that became a pet project of mine and many of you probably got my fundraising call before this little race in iowa, justice wiggins was on the ballot for -- in iowa. our opposition, the three judges on the iowa supreme court ever up in, the national organization for marriage spent $1 million to keep them and did so by 10 or 15 points. justice wiggins was the fourth judge on the ballot this november was made their priority as well. they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and they campaigned across the strait and had us trips across the state. we went in with some lawyers that were there in the state and a partner in the campaign and we save justice wiggins.
and all is coming at a time when the obama administration has cut the defense budget, projecting over the ten-year period by some $487 billion and if the obama sequestration were to become a reality that would be a trillion dollars over this period of time coming out of our defense budget, even -- even the secretary of defense, the obama secretary of defense said it would be devastating. he used the word devastating. if that were not enough the obama administration continues to force the military to spend greater proportions of its already depleted funds on a gene energy agenda to include the purchase of biofuels for operational use in construction of commercial biofuel refineries. now, you know, i fully support development and use of alternative fuels including klug biofuels but not at the expense of the military. the focus should be on the readiness of the navy, not on propping up the biofuels industry. i have to remind everyone, we've a bureaucracy called the department of energy. they're the ones supposed to be doing all this experimentation we talk about. the navy according to th
in two years ago when we were facing off with president obama over stimulus and so forth. he won a lot of those battles. this year i think it is even more, republicans come in even more united resolve against increases in tax rates. we have reason to be optimistic. president obama said on friday, gave a presser, and didn't mention his tax rates promise. so we feel like if we can be united and strong together, we can go into an effort to find common ground without this, this evil empire of new rates, new tax increased rates and for that i think that boehner holds a pretty strong hand. rick: alexis, how willing do you think democrats will be to cut a deal? i wonder if there is danger for democrats who might feel a bit emboldened after last tuesday they could overplay their hand in a way? >> i don't think so at all. i think democrats are feeling very strong about this. i'm not sure they would characterize it quite as the evil empire as terry does. >> if you want to wreck an economy. you could raise tax rates. that is pretty evil. >> i don't think that happened under reagan or under bill c
